We're pleased to offer students discounted tickets (“Student Rush”) to performances throughout the year. Eligible students can get 50% off last-minute tickets (when available) to SFJAZZ performances that take place in the Robert N. Miner Auditorium.

Who is eligible for the discount?
Students: grade school, middle school, high school and college (including graduate school). College and graduate students must have valid student ID. The Student Rush discount is not transferable to anyone who is not an eligible student.

Which events are eligible for Student Rush discount tickets?
All SFJAZZ events that are not already discounted (e.g., Family Matinee Concerts, Special Family Shows, Education Events such as Beacon Award concerts, Discover Jazz classes.)

How many Student Rush discount tickets can I buy?
Each eligible student may buy up to two discounted tickets.

How do I buy Student Rush discounted tickets?
Eligible students enjoy 50% off the regular ticket price to SFJAZZ concerts (see exceptions above), based upon ticket availability. Heavily-sold shows that are close to selling out may not be available for Student Rush. These discounted tickets can only be purchased at the venue ticket window on the day/night of the event. Just show your valid student ID and ask for Student Rush. (Note: Availability of Student Rush tickets for a given event will not be announced in advance.)

Student Rush tickets are non-refundable and non-exchangeable.

Types of payment accepted at the venue box office are:
Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and cash.

If you have any questions about the Student Rush program, please email boxoffice@sfjazz.org. Enjoy!

Leaders Circle Lounges are a benefit for all Leaders Circle Membership levels. During select intermissions* for concerts in the Robert N. Miner Auditorium, we invite Leaders Circle Members and their guests to skip waiting in bar lines and engage in good conversation with other music enthusiasts. Located in the Joe Henderson Lab off the first floor lobby, Leaders Circle Members enjoy a glass or two of complimentary wine or beer, tasty desserts from GreenCap Catering, savory nuts, water and soda. Just enough time to grab a bite to eat and meet like-minded jazz patrons before the second set!

Discography

Each season, SFJAZZ produces a deluxe, limited edition CD set of live performance recordings of the SFJAZZ Collective’s repertoire for that year.

In addition to documenting the band members’ original compositions every season, each year’s CD set includes works by one of jazz’s “modern master” composers: Ornette Coleman (2004), John Coltrane (2005), Herbie Hancock (2006), Thelonious Monk (2007), Wayne Shorter (2008), McCoy Tyner (2009), Horace Silver (2010) and Stevie Wonder (2011). After the blockbuster success of the group’s take on the work of soul legend Stevie Wonder, the Collective turns their focus to the music of keyboard genius Chick Corea.

These CD sets are only available from SFJAZZ. Many of the albums listed below are also available for digital download at iTunes, Amazon and other digital music retailers.

Available Now!
Recorded throughout the Collective’s four-night residency October 20-23, 2016 at the SFJAZZ Center, the limited edition 2-disc set features the Collective’s reimagining of the music of Miles Davis as well as original compositions.

This limited edition 2-disc set, recorded during the Collective’s four-night residency in October 2015 on the Robert N. Miner Auditorium stage at the SFJAZZ Center, documents the SFJAZZ Collective’s arrangements of the music of Michael Jackson as well as their own stimulating compositions.
